Property Description

Welcome home to this rare, impeccably-combined duplex, four bedroom, two bath where you will inhabit the top two floors of a beautiful Upper West Side brownstone. The current owners painstakingly combined two units while adding a glass floor and steel beams (inspired by the 5th Avenue Apple Store) to bring sunlight from the top floor skylight to the newly-created, expansive chef's kitchen on the lower floor. The private oasis features high ceilings, two working, wood-burning fireplaces with original mantels, beautiful woodwork, oak hardwood floors, rotund balcony and a generous private terrace.

The chef's kitchen will be a dream to cook in as it has Dacor gas cooktop and range/convection oven, high-velocity vented-out exhaust, Bosch dishwasher, pear wood custom cabinets, Brazilian Ubatuba granite countertops, built-in water filter and SubZero refrigerator.

The interior stairs with spacious built-in storage lead to two bedroom wings with bathrooms and a Miele washer and dryer in-between. The primary bathroom features radiant floors, custom bamboo storage and a custom glass shower with Axor fixtures. The second bathroom has a deep-soaking tub and granite countertop.

The two larger bedrooms each have room for a king-sized bed with room leftover - one features a walk-in closet. This home offers plenty of storage with another hall walk-in closet and an "attic" storage space above the vented bathrooms. There's also communal storage in the basement where there are washers and gas dryers for the building.

The building is lovingly and expertly maintained having just had its facade repaired last year and recently installed building-wide central air and heating through ultra efficient Mitsubishi split systems. The chimneys were re-lined and chimney fans installed to improve the draft of the wood-burning fireplaces. The building's windows were replaced with top of the line, double-pane Pella windows while saving the original pocket shutters. The building now features video intercoms that can ring your phone. Maintenance is low and the building is in great condition. Minimal board package application process and this building does not have a flip tax. Dogs and cats are permitted.

The 20 foot wide historic Romanesque Revival townhouse, built in 1892, was the home of famous essayist John Jay Chapman and was one of the first townhouses on the Upper West Side to receive coop status. The location is superb - one building from Riverside Park (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted) on beautiful, tree-lined West 82nd Street between Riverside Drive and West End Avenue. Prepare for the best of Upper West Side living because this home is also convenient to Zabar's, Citarella, Fairway, The Children's Museum of Manhattan, The Beacon Theatre, AMC Movie Theater, Barnes and Noble, The Strand at Columbus Ave, Maison Pickle, French Roast, Elea, Barney Greengrass, Land Thai, Levain Bakery, Orwasher's, Daily Provisions, Chipotle, Peacefood Uptown and Blue Bottle. Public transportation is a dream with Citi Bike Station on the corner, the M5 bus on the corner, and the M104 bus, the Crosstown M79 bus, and the 1 train within a few blocks.

Upper West Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Bracketed on its east and west borders by massive city parks, the Upper West Side (UWS) is known for its greenery, stately and elegant townhomes, safe streets and great schools, all of which make it a very desirable neighborhood for families. The UWS has maintained its community feeling, making it attractive to young professionals and retirees, both of whom want a sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Here you’ll find many apartment buildings, especially those along Central Park West. Historic architecture abounds, anchored by four luxury co-ops - the San Remo, Majestic, Century and Eldorado apartments - all of which have two towers on their interiors. They were built in the 1930s and their design was predicated on a 1929 building code that imposed a height limit on residences facing the street. There are also impressive row houses near Riverside Drive throughout the W 70 and 80 Streets. Above the 90s, you will find smaller buildings where walk-ups are very reasonably priced.

There are several world-class museums and venues dedicated to the performing arts. Plentiful dining can be found in the UWS. You will find everything from quaint Jewish delis serving up bagels and a schmear to sophisticated fine dining that has earned multiple Michelin stars, and everything you could possibly want in between. There is also abundant shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
